My Never-ending Safe Shelter-In-Place

Open sunflower to the sun

I’ve lost count of how many days we’ve been in our Covid19 Shelter-In-Place. That’s what I call our current situation because it reminds me of our “Shelter-In-Place” drills at school. I know I can leave home, but I don’t want to leave. In the United States, our Covid19 prevention is mixed with the wannabe authoritarian politics of TrumpTwat.

Most of our country has not been under lockdown. I’m fortunate that I live in a state with a sane Democratic governor. (Had this happened with Chris Crispy, there would be even more chaos.) He’s taking the information from scientists and doctors seriously. However, there are still a few Covidiots in our state who refuse to believe the virus exists. Some of them live next door to me.

“Orwellian Update: Only 20 Pages Into the Book

Orwellian Update

I’m about 20 pages into 1984 after four months of attempting to read the book. Every time I try to read it, I keep thinking it’s an actual news report about our current government. Then I realize the US media is busy trying to make #Drumpf look normal.
